Booster Gold Bio



Since his debut in 1985 as DC Comic’s first major character in its newly reorganized post-Crisis on Infinite Earths Universe, Booster Gold has appeared in 756 comic books, working alongside most of DC Comic’s most storied characters, including Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. What has made Booster Gold unique in the years since is his uncommon embrace of global celebrity and monetary reward for performing super heroic acts often associated with more altruistic heroes. Few would guess that beneath the veneer of self-importance is a hero with a real heart of gold, selflessly dedicated to preserving recorded history.

Personality Summary: Carter’s defining attributes are his self-confidence, strong sense of humor, and eternal optimism. Carter is clever but prone to making selfish, snap judgements without considering the consequences. His charisma and confidence would make him a natural leader were it not for his extensive and well-publicized history of poor decision-making.
